Disassemble Reassemble
         Version 1.5.1 - For Starsector 0.8.1a          



       

Download here:
https://bitbucket.org/AxleMC131/starsector_modding/downloads/DisassembleReassemble_v1.5.1.zip

Requires LazyLib:
http://fractalsoftworks.com/forum/index.php?topic=5444.0

Supports Version Checker:
http://fractalsoftworks.com/forum/index.php?topic=8181.0



Features

- Over 30 custom ships and several variant skins with full campaign integration -
- A collection of modular weapons, fighters and hullmods equipping them in various loadouts*, as well as several unique built-ins -
- A small collection of custom missions for testing purposes and combat scenarios -

* Supports Dynasector's ship variant randomization!

Through originally unintentional means, Disassemble Reassemble's ship and weapon content has several key themes:
- Pirate and Luddic Path craft -
- Missile weaponry and the ships to field it -
- Exploration, salvage and surveying vessels -
- Carriers and fightercraft -
 If you want to expand the stock ship/weapon repertoire, and those sound to your taste, then this might be the mod for you!  Cheesy

Starsector Race Mode
Two experimental single missions that put you in the pilot's seat of a pure-bred, highly-strung speed machine as you attempt to score the best time in battles against the clock!




The 34th annual Persean League Grand Prix. The most prestigious and thrilling starship rally race in the Sector. Your pit team have been toiling away for hours on end making sure your ship is running smooth, hot and fast; your flight crew are in the simulators, brushing up on their maneuvres and course planning; your public representative is giving you a huge thumbs up in front of the waving, screaming crowds of fans displayed on the holoscreen.

Ready to race? Start your engines!

The tac laser on the wren looks really sleek/well moulded to the hull and the custom mining blaster on the katrina class is a cool departure from the regular one without looking out of place.

Thanks!  Cheesy The Katrina's built for mining and salvage, so comes with a built-in Salvage Gantry hullmod and a wing of Borer Drones. Role-wise, it's basically a heavier, slower Shepherd minus the civilian hull and Surveying Equipment. Also doesn't have quite as much cargo space, though IIRC it has slightly more fuel capacity.

Glad you like it! I tried several times to paste a regular Mining Blaster onto the Katrina, but it just looked wrong no matter how I did it. The one you see there is actually a combination of the Mining Pod Drone sprite (with the warning stripes) with an IR Pulse Laser pasted underneath.

Love the Manta since it can carry Fighter wings, though the lack of Missile weaponry kinda makes it less versatile.

As for the Katrina, does it give the same salvage bonus as the salvage rigs? I'm in a dilemma on picking this ship or stay with the salvage rig.

That's intentional. A lot of its versatility comes from the fighters you choose to take.

It's technically a frigate, so no. It gives the same bonus as a Shepherd would.

Update: Version 0.2

Enjoy (technically) two new ships, a low-tech heavy frigate and a freighter derived from the same class, the Gladiator and Gladiator (F).


   


We also have a third form of the Wren, in pretty pirate paint for you to fight!

Well I guess there's that.

Oh...I thought its a destroyer. Welp, I guess I can keep one or two for now until Nexerelin gets updated (with the mining and everything).

Hehe, yeah I was actually thinking about Nexerelin mining in the back of my mind when I put it together. Should be a great ship for it, no doubt!

I did give it a try today, and I really like your work so far! Especially the gladiators do fit in really well (:

Edit: Also Manta turned out to be a great surprise. I really like 'her'!

Thanks!  Grin Yeah, the Manta might not look like much but she's hugely fun to fly. Tongue

Update: Version 0.3 - Miscellaneous Autobalancing

A heavy balance pass over some miscellaneous ship stats (Katrina got more fuel space, Manta got cheaper, Wren got faster, etc.).

Also say hello to a new high-tech ship, the Seraph-class Missile Destroyer:

With a wing of multirole craft with good kinetic missiles - devastating Tongue

Damn straight. Tongue

Yep. The only changes are ship stats, and the addition of the Seraph (which should start spawning in new fleets) - nothing's been removed that would break a savegame.
